This 2012 has been the year in my entire life where I have done the most traveling so far.  I can’t wait to see what 2013 has for me, I do have tons of traveling plans set already for next year and I am excited.  I realized that life is too short to be in one corner and not seeing lots of beautiful things around the world.  I am quite fortunate to be given this opportunity to travel.  And I am so blessed to have all my friends and family in my life to support and take care of me all the time.

Happy New Year!
